A Thousand Trials

15 Jul

My Take

DiVoran Lites

Trials make us more able to trust God. We trust Him more quickly each time one Author, Poet and Artistcomes to us and we trust him on a deeper level the next time. We must, however, remember to come to him while we are in the trial and to ask him for revelation, insight, peace, and power every time.

If we try to white-knuckle it though life, we turn ourselves blind and deaf to the guidance and miracle help he wants to give us. When we tell Him we need his nurturing and care in the midst of the storm, He will perform miracles so wondrous we are hardly able to contain their glory. It’s worth it. We’re worth it. Being in the center of His will is worth it.

“All things work together for good for those who love God and who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28

“In one thousand trials it is not five hundred of them that work for the believer’s good, but nine hundred and ninety-nine of them and one besides.” George Mueller

    Monday’s are difficult days for so many people. How encouraging to realize we don’t have to “white knuckle’ our way through a single day or trial.

    Beautifully expressed, Divoran. This has been a very difficult weekend. “Big Momma” died Friday. Her body was discovered under my car where she chose to be in her final moments. Her “kids” keep searching for her with an attitude of sadness and anxiety. I have spent many moments with the Lord thanking Him for his comfort, not just for Ginger (Momma’s girl) and her siblings, but for lifting the heaviness from my own heart. God truly is a wonderful friend.

      Louise when one of my animals dies I cry all day long and miss them forever, so I understand how you feel. I also know you have God’s comfort and i’m so glad for that.
